Listen to MHD and Wizkid's New Single 'Bella'

MHD gets the Nigerian star to join him for this addictive new track.

MHD is the French rapper of Guinean and Senegalese descent who's been spearheading an "Afro Trap" revolution out of his base in Paris—and getting hundreds of millions of views on Youtube while he's at it.

For his latest single, "Bella," the buzzing rapper gets none-other-than Wizkid to join him over some twinkling keys and mid-tempo beat work.

"Bella" is the second single we've heard from MHD's highly-anticipated new album, 19, named for Paris' 19th arrondissement where he grew up. The album's set for release September 19 on Motown Records.

The new track is a step away from the hard-hitting "Afro Trap" beats MHD usually raps over, but it's the kind of groove that Starboy is definitely very used to.

Previous to this drop, MHD most recently released the high-energy "Bodyguard."

For more from the buzzing French rapper, check out our exclusive OkayAfrica interview with him.
